Alternate Author Name(s): Alleyne, Ellen; Rossetti, Christina
Subject(s): God; Love


Lord, give me love that I may love Thee much,
Yea, give me love that I may love Thee more.
And all for love may worship and adore
And touch Thee with love's consecrated touch.
I halt to-day ; be love my cheerful crutch.
My feet to plod, some day my wings to soar:
Some day ; but, Lord, not any day before
Thou call me perfect, having made me such.
This is a day of love, a day of sorrow.
Love tempering sorrow to a sort of bliss;
A day that shortens while we call it long:
A longer day of love will dawn tomorrow,
A longer, brighter, lovelier day than this.
Endless, all love, no sorrow, but a song.
